Green Party Presidential Candidate, Cynthia McKinney, recently spoke with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! about President-elect Obama’s historic win. (See transcript.) McKinney discussed the many differences that her campaign had with the Democratic Party platform, especially in regard to the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and the Wall Street bailout. Professor Manning Marable of Columbia University was also a guest for this segment and commented on progressive issues in both campaigns.
Cynthia McKinney ranked 6th in national voting results. We applaud this courageous leader and the Green Party for bringing to the forefront the issues and concerns of low-income individuals and families across this country!
